Reviews and Ratings

Neil Phillips rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A lovely passe-tout-grains style red blend of Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir from Vinemount Ridge.

Aromas of dried herbs, strawberry, sour cherry, slight baking spices. On the palate, a little juicier with same fruits and lush red plums as well. Peppery-clove finish. Well-balanced

Light-ish 11.9% ABV (as labelled), this is perfect for warm summer evenings.

Tasted July 2020.
Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I was really curious and excited to discover Westcott Vineyards’ Temperance. As mentioned on the label: “a rebel at heart, this gamay-noir pinot-noir blend is approachable and complex”. Light red colour in the glass. Aromas and flavours of cherries. I paired it with a Lebanese poutine which was great with the mix of roasted potatoes and cheese. 11.9 alcohol.? Lovely creative attractive label. The 2018 vintage is available at the SAQ (SAQ code: 14209964 ) at $19.95. The 2019 vintage can be purchased directly on the winery’s website: https://www.westcottvineyards.com/collections/our-wines/products/2019-temperance

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
